As Christians we have a rich history of “vocation” as the way to live out our lives in service. The God who called Israel and sent Jesus has something in mind for us. God’s call challenges us, and opens us to personal and spiritual development throughout our lives. Living Vocationally, by Paul Wadell and Charles Pinches is the NetVUE Big Read; the books have been provided by NetVUE, part of the Council of Independent Colleges.

The first meeting focuses on Part I, “Preparing for the Journey,” which considers the benefits of living vocationally, and biblical traditions of call. In October, we will consider Part II, “The Journey of the Called Life” which examines why vocation pertains not only to careers, but indeed touches every dimension of our lives and encompasses our full journey through life. Part III, for the November meeting, considers the virtues we need to live the called life well: attentiveness, humility, gratitude, fidelity, justice, courage, hope and patience.

After submitting your registration, the CELT Student Worker will send you an Outlook invitation for this event that includes the Zoom link. Please accept this invitation as you will not receive a separate email confirmation.

Faith and Learning Lunch ‘n Learn: The Family with Harald Tomesch [CUW only]

Wednesday September 22, 12:10 to 1:00pm in the Lakeshore Room

Luther did not use the two kingdoms doctrine employed by later Orthodox theologians. He rather used the three economies. All these economies are under tremendous stress but none like the Family as God designed it. This session will explore the role of biblical marriage, Christian identity and how family life shapes the larger institutions of church and state. Especially, with the family, according to Scripture, some areas are non-negotiable.
